Most people pay a lot of attention to the designing of kitchens, since they typically turn out to become family rooms where everyone gathers for meals. Designing a kitchen comes with the responsibility of planning its layout, and also figuring out the positioning of the refrigerator, microwave, and other such kitchenware along with the placement of the cabinets. In order to ensure proper placement, you need to know the dimensions of kitchen cabinets. Mostly, these cabinets have standard dimensions, as manufactured by companies. You may need to alter them depending on your individual needs, however, it can be more expensive, and also time-consuming. Once you know the standard dimensions, you can design your kitchen accordingly, saving the time and money that goes into customizing the cabinets.
First of all you need to determine the budget for the kitchen cabinet remodeling. If you have a big budget, you can think of removing the old cabinets completely and installing new cabinets. But, if you have a smaller budget then it is advisable to repair the old cabinets using your creativity or just changing the exteriors of the cabinets to make them look like new. Given below are some of the ideas that can help you refinish the kitchen cabinets with a unique twist for a new makeover.
To faux paint your kitchen cabinets, you will require at least two colors, a crackle paint and a tinted painter's wax. Apply a base color to your cabinets first and then apply a layer of tinted painter's wax. You can now apply another layer of color to the same surface and cover it with another layer of tinted painter's wax. Finally apply the crackling paint over the surface. After this final layer of paint dries, simply brush the surface using a sandpaper to remove any irregularities in the surface.
If your kitchen cabinets are light colored, you can apply a glaze color to darken them. This can be done through the process of staining. Apply a certain amount of glaze color on a limited area of the kitchen and start rubbing it using a wipe or sponge, until you get the desired color on that portion of your wood work. Once you are done with that particular area, color the remaining portions using the same process. Take care, that the entire cabinet has the same uniform color. One very important factor is that you need to choose a proper color. For antique kitchen cabinets, you should use metallic colors.
